Veterans and Other Sisley Supporters Allowed to Speak at ABOR Meeting

Posted By on Thu, Sep 25, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Based on past experiences speaking in front of the Arizona Board of Regents, a group of military veterans looking to protest the firing of Sue Sisley were worried they'd be turned away or not allowed to speak during the call to audience at today's ABOR meeting.

We talked to Sean Kiernan, founder of Veterans for Doctor Sue Sisley MD & PTSD Research, for our story last week about a sent a letter he sent to ABOR asking for an independent review "surrounding the termination" of Sisley. He did just that, along with about 15 others—a mixed group of other veterans, nonvets and activists—all asking for Sisley to be reinstated and more transparency from the UA on her termination.

"Everything went well," Kiernan said, adding that everyone was respectful, including police in attendance, as well as ABOR members.

No decision was made at the meeting, but Kiernan was told a video of the meeting would be archived and available soon. We'll post that video on the range as soon as ABOR makes it public.
